at this election we see obama is about to get crushed among white voters but about to dominant with black and brown voters which may carry him over the goal line. are we at a place in america where white america can get together pick a candidate and still not get what they want? >> i think we've reached that place. to say that it's white america all for romney and against obama is wrong. president obama will win pennsylvania if he toes and i think he will is in the philadelphia suburbs which are predominantly 85%, 90% white. that's where you have progressive democrats in the suburbs become being increasingly democrat. you got the last of the moderate republicans and a lot of independents as well. and they are voters who are intelligent, they care about the environment, they care about social justice, they care about causes like women's right to choose, et cetera. and those white voters will stay with the president in significant numbers and that's what will bring him to victory in pennsylvania. pennsylvania is a state with about a 10% to 12% african-american population and about a 6% to 8% latino p
. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of readers switched voting allegiance. they flipped their allegiances in 2000. i have to say, i think an interesting number that matters is when you compare the endorsement numbers, obama has 34 endorsement from major, significant papers. romney has 27. look at the circulation of those endorsements. obama's total just over 9 million readers. >> 27? >> and mitt romney is at 27 and not 7. his total circulation just under 5 million. so i don't know that this is a scientific reading of those numbers, but you have to imagine 9 million readers reading obama endorsement, 5 million readers reading romney. i have to imagine that ends up as a net plus for obama somewhere down the line. let's just quickly ask "des moines register" political columnist kathy obradovich who might shed light on this
to be supportive. >> it should be noted that michael brown, aka, brownie, fells that the president acted too quickly in responding to this crisis. >> he should have let them suffer a little bit more, brownie. i want to talk about the cleveland plane dealer endorsing the president. the cleveland plane dealer as you know has been -- has endorsed the winner in every election since 1964, but to one of those was a board in '76 and in '04 they endorsed no one. this is a bellwether endorsement if in a bellwether state. i wonder if you think we should look at an endorsement as influential? will this shift some votes in ohio or a thermometer endorsement? >> we like to think it's a cleveland plain that we're so influential. i'm sure that we are. but, you know, i think that people who read these things, you know, they -- there are other papers in ohio that have endorsed romney. i believe the columbus dispatch and the cincinnati enquirer endorsed him as well. people will read these things, read the arguments that each editorial board makes and make their own decisions better informed for the research th
is the confederacy. 1864, the map, the states that were in the confederacy all brown on this map. that's all one block from virginia to texas to florida and that to me speaks to a sort of ugly divide that we have going on in america right now and, you know, there we are. if we could exhume lincoln and mcclellan and look at the map, they would be like, wow, i recognize that map. >> they were democrats. >> absolutely. >> but you know now a long unpacking of changing the meaning and the south entirely agreed and the north disagreed and now at the same position. >> so my south is not all red. i am quite bullish on the president's chances. i give him the states toure did as well as virginia and florida and florida i actually just moved in to this column today on the strength of three different factors. two of them having to do with the latino vote. the demographics have shifted in favor of democrats even since 2008. our friend nate cohn pointed out 69% to 65.5% over 4 years, 150,000 more african-americans registered and 300,000 more registered hispanics. plurality of which are registered as democrats
of america. the panhandle is white but the rest is going more brown and black and white people are not in charge of the rest of the stay electorally as they used to be. this win in particular forces the gop to change their stance on immigration. otherwise, we're going to continue to lose elections for a long time. the pea party is chasing latinos out of the gop, and that is not a long-term winning strategy. >> before we go to break, we talked about and wanted to talk about mayor bloomberg's decision to hold the new york city mare than this weekend. with all due respect mr. mayor, what the hell are you thinking? new york city is a disaster area. thousands are homeless or displaced, hundreds of thousands still without power in queens, manhattan and brooklyn. the subways aren't fully functional. the gas stations are out of gas. staten island where the marathon will kick off with celebratory fan fare is screams for more attention as they try to recover from the devastation to their neighborhood. >> they're putting people in the marathon in hotels instead of people that have no plac
